Minneapolis, MN, [7 June 2024] – Open Arms of Minnesota is thrilled to announce the launch of the first-ever Great Minnesota Bake Sale, set to take place from June 23 to June 29, 2024. This exciting event will see a network of bakeries, coffee shops, retailers, and online partners from across the Twin Cities Metro area come together to raise vital funds for Open Arms’ mission to deliver lifesaving, medically tailored meals to critically ill Minnesotans in need.  

Food has always been more than just sustenance; it fosters a sense of community and has long been a means to support important causes. The tradition of bake sales, rooted deeply in our Midwestern heritage, is a testament to this. Open Arms is bringing a fresh twist to this beloved tradition with the Great Minnesota Bake Sale, where partners will host week-long bake sales to support our mission. 

Our Bake Sale Partners include a diverse array of bakeries, coffee shops, retailers, and sponsors. Each partner will participate by promoting the Great Minnesota Bake Sale and donate a portion of their sales during the event week. All the public needs to do to take part in this campaign is check out our list of Bake Sale partners, stop in at their stores from June 23-29, and ask how to support the Open Arms! Support can come in many forms, including sales of specialty items like cupcakes and cookbooks, select merchandise, a designated percentage of sales, in-store events, online promotions, tip jars, and set monetary donations. 

A complete list (map included) of participating Bake Sale partners can be found at www.openarmsmn.org/bakesale 

We encourage community members and additional businesses to join this initiative. By participating, you help raise awareness and funds for Open Arms, ensuring that we can continue to provide our critical services. Whether through special products, promotions, or events, your involvement will make a significant impact. 

For more information about the Great Minnesota Bake Sale and how you can get involved, please contact Ethan Armstrong at [email protected] or visit our website at www.openarmsmn.org/bakesale. 

Join us in celebrating this new spin on a time-honored tradition and help us make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Together, we can bake a better future!
